Halloween Costumes for Mickeys Not So Scary Night..

Well last night my wife's sister made her usual phone call from Los Angeles to catch up on all the gossip..Of course my wife informed her little sister that we've booked WDW for October and of course Halloween came up...She sent us via E Mail the various Disney costumes that are available and my good lady has picked out hers, mine, and my sons..( He is cracking up ) I'am now convinced that she is more excited than me for this forthcoming trip...Anyway little sister will send us the masks as there's no way I'am wearing these outfits on Halloween night..LOL..How far do adults go dressing up at these party nights.?

I saw your name sake there and it looked pretty authentic. I saw a few belles with her books. People really went with what made them comfortable. The best advice I could give is find something that you like and can feel comfortable getting on and off the rides. Some people decide to skip rides and people watch and do all the events. It really is a full party and totally up to you as what to take from it. We loved it.

We've been to the Halloween party a couple of times, and many adults do dress accordingly. And as evidence, I give to you the Joker and Beetlejuice.

These guys were waiting around for either the Halloween parade, or the Halloween fireworks. This is a screen grab from my camcorder.

Also, here are some links to posts containing pics of adults in costumes for the Halloween party:

We've never gone the costume route, but my future plans include it. Maybe for the WDW 50th anniversary.

We've been twice and it's a hodge-podge. Some adults go full costume, some are more disneybound, and others just their regular clothes (no costume). Some of the costumes are elaborate, some come from stores such as Party City, and others are just pieced together. Whatever your DW decides, just have a good time.

My BFF & I went dressed as fans of our professional baseball team , The Pittsburgh Pirates. Trust me Captain Jack Sparrow was very intrigued that there was a team known as the "Pirates." biggrin

We have been twice now, the first time we went as greek gods, mainly cause i wanted something i could wear flip flops with and that would be cool and not too much in the florida heat, this last time we went as Minnie and mickey and we had loads of interaction with the CM's, so much so that we are thinking of reusing the same outfits Wink

I've been twice first year I went as a pirate it was fantastic seeing little kids walking around and saying "wow there's a pirate or whatever character they saw" my only problem as being a fellow UK visitor although my outfit didn't seem on paper to be a warm outfit, it was polyester and by the end of the night I felt like I had shedded about 2 stone in sweat alone!!!!!!! this year i actually forgot my costume so had to improvise and I may not have been dressed up (however I had some special disney villian ears!) but I was much more comfortable than I had been the year previous.

however saying that i would still recommend dressing up a little bit!

me and my gf are going this October with her sister and her bf, we aren't sure they are going to be bothered about dressing up and so we have been thinking of cute couple costumes. So far it looks like we are going to be Mr Fredrickson and Ellie from UP, in their zoo worker gear. We thought for extra fun we would wear it to AK too in the day for a picture with Russell. We thought something wear the characters wear normal clothes would help our thick British blood in the heat and also I have to have a costume wear glasses are part of it!

We didn't dress up last time and we felt a bit out of it, DH isn't normally into these things but even he went and got his facepainted as Jack on the night and said he would have felt more a part of it if we were dressed up. The characters definitely seemed to respond better to those in costume, so we are going organised this time.

My eldest is trying to work out what we will all wear, I think she was last going with an Oz theme, so hubby as Oz, I want to be Evanora but she wants me to be Glinda the Good waiting , then her as Dorothy and the two younger ones as Munchkins.

Other idea was around Alice in Wonderland, with hubby as the Mad Hatter, her as Alice, me as the Queen of Hearts (easy as I have an old fancy dress costume I could rework) and not sure about the younger ones, maybe as the Cheshire Cat or the dormouse, or maybe as cards.

I am planning to make the costumes so no polyester in sight! We need to decide so I can start picking things up from charity shops soon and not be rushing to pull it together nearer the time. I did find a bargain damaged wedding dress in TKMaxx for PS20 and I nearly bought it to be the basis of a Glinda costume for me.

We went as Dorothy and the Scarecrow. We put a lot of thought into our costumes because we wanted to also be comfortable considering it was still quite warm. We made ours, so we were able to use very lightweight fabrics. I didn't want anything with tons of face makeup, because I knew we would sweat it off. Even when we made hubs headgear, we made sure the top of it was open, so his head could breathe.

We saw everything from very elaborate to just a t-shirt, to wearing just normal clothes. I agree, we had much more interaction with CM's and other guests by going pretty elaborate. I think it added to our experience ten fold. Also, we were not planning on riding many rides, but more enjoying of the party events, but if you are going to ride, I would make sure you take that into consideration.

Also, those that wore masks, were taking them off and carrying them as it was so hot and they were sweating so bad.

We saw lots of Dorothy's from young to old (suits the young better) we dressed up as sketelon and zombie and I face painted but it ran a bit by the time we got back! Second time I wore Queen of Hearts ears and fingerless gloves and what I'd had on during the day.
